Boys Ranch Phase I Project Update

Posted on April 27, 2017 at 4:25 PM by Michlynn St. John

Construction has begun on the $3.2 million voter approved Boys Ranch Phase I project. Though the improvements have been long anticipated, there will be temporary impacts due to construction and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The first part of Phase I is the drainage channel improvements. This will impact the playground, sidewalks and surrounding areas. At this time, this area should be completed including the installation of a new playground area around April 2015.

Immediately following is the second part of Phase I, which includes dredging of the lake and construction of surrounding amenities. The estimated completion date of this portion of construction is August 2015.

Access
At this time access is restricted to the playground areas, sidewalks around Doug Rivers Drive and the area around the drainage channel. The trail system around the Boys Ranch Lake is still open to park users.

At no time will entry into the Senior Center, the Boys Ranch Activity Center, Splash or the baseball fields be affected.

Playground Options
If you are looking for a playground, please visit our other parks at Central Park (1200 Central Drive) or Stormie Jones Park (2500 Block of Brasher).

Again we apologize and thank you for your patience as we work to improve the parks system.
